The Ultimate in rear suspension

Rating:
The Good:

Awesome damping and not overly complex adjustments.. the adjustments all do exactly what they should. The unit just plain works and gets you through the rough stuff without any doubts about it. and its fully home servicable.

The Bad:

begining stroke rebound head used to come loose abit, but some locktite on the threads stopped that. very small amount of dead travel at the begining, but may just be mine

Overall Review:

does the job, and does a bloody good job of it... perfect suspension thats there when you need it without ever worrying about it.
